Bio

Steve is a small business owner who is a community advocate working with issue-based organizations in Victoria. His greatest contribution has been 18 years of working with the Earth Walk Committee, which involves a participatory parade and an environmental fair that showcases roughly 40 different cause-oriented non-profit groups.

 

Why should I vote for you?

Vote for me because of my serious commitment to the issues we are facing as a society. Many of them have remained little changed over the past 25 years. It is time for new perspectives and an open accountable city hall. We’ve been struggling for freedom of information since the 70’s!

 

Your main goal if elected?

My main goal as a councillor is to advocate for an equity gaining housing program to help renters stuck in over-market rental units transitioning them into becoming owners of property. We can do this by reorganizing the city’s investment budgets for a win-win!
